West Virginia: Campus Carry Passes House, On to Senate

West Virginia: Campus Carry Passes House, On to Senate

On February 27th, the West Virginia state House of Delegates passed House Bill 2519 by a vote of 59-41 to ensure that law-abiding adults are not stripped of their right to self-defense when they cross an arbitrary boundary onto a college campus.  Earlier on the same day, HB 2519 was motioned to be referred to the House Rules Committee.  Despite that delay, HB 2519 returned to the floor in time for a vote and will now go to the state Senate Judiciary Committee for further consideration.  Please contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 2519.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.

House Bill 2519, sponsored by Delegate Jim Butler (R-14), would allow law-abiding CHL holders to carry on the campus of a state institution of higher education.  Current state law does not prohibit carrying of a defensive firearm on campus, but institution policy could lead to expulsion or termination of employment.  Adults who are officially licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense off-campus should not be prevented from doing so just because they seek higher education.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and urge committee members to SUPPORT HB 2519.
